We can always count on Elie Saab to drop our jaws a little come couture week, and this season he certainly did just that. Sure, there were plenty of his mesmerizing, over-sized princess-style gowns and more than a handful of Oscars-worthy frocks to keep everyone satisfied, but this season Saab dared to include a few new flavours into his usually quite samey (yet insanely beautiful) runway lineup. A predominantly dark and collection (it’s Fall season after all) with plenty of unexpected twists and turns, this was in many ways a much more grown up and sophisticated collection for Saab.
Whether the dream-maker is just trying to keep us on our toes or diversify his customer base, I’m not sure – but to further mix things up, the designer decided to dabble in none other than kiddie couture for Fall 2016, (that’s right folks, couture gowns for the under 10’s!)
